The inventory suggests that the listed A4R G025E, G025H, and G025I models of the Pixel 4a are actually the 5G variants of the Pixel 4a – the Pixel 4a 5G to be precise. The other listed models A4R GD1YQ, GTT9Q, and G5NZ6 are said to be the Pixel 5 variants.

Interestingly, per the listing, both smartphones will have the same LTE and 5G band support. The Pixel 5 (GD1YQ) is however listed with bands n260 and n261 that point to mmWave support. The Pixel 5 is also tipped to have support for Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) and feature a 4,000mAh battery. The 6-inch Full HD+ display phone with screen refresh rate of 90Hz is also going to feature a 3.5mm headphone slot.

The phone will be powered by Snapdragon 765G SoC and come paired with 6GB of RAM. Though this model will have support for sub-6 5G band and as opposed to Pixel 4a, this is getting a dual-camera setup on the back.
